Review: 2019 was a busy year for 84bit, a producer who released a mixture of deep house and nu-disco jams on a variety of largely digital-only labels. "Mamma Jamma" is his debut for Disco Fruit and features a number of notable cuts. Chief amongst these is the title track, a bustling, bass-heavy chunk of booming disco-house that's subsequently taken in a funkier direction by the ubiquitous Dr Packer, Hotmood and Tonbe, whose fine revision is looser, warmer and baggier. The EP also boasts two versions of "HN": an electric piano-laden original mix that expertly joins the dots between elecro, funk breaks and disco-funk, and a bubbly nu-disco revision by label regular Mitko.
Review: This undeniably epic set by Brian Basil van Heerden under the familiar Brian Snr alias offers up a handful of unheard cuts and a dizzying array of remixes of previous Disco Fruit singles "She's Superfly" and "Down 4Some Loving". In the former category you'll find "Let's Dance", a hard-wired disco chugger rich in rasping saxophone solos, the piano-sporting disco-funk strut of "Like A Fever" and the low slung dub disco/electrofunk fusion of "Lover's Delight". Remix-wise, we're rather enjoying the stripped back mid-tempo chunkiness of SNR's revision of "She's Superfly", the Clav-happy, slo-mo breakbeat sludge-funk that is Mitiko's remix of "Down 4 Some Loving" and C Da Afro's electrofunk take on the same track. That said, the quality threshold remains high throughout.
Review: Given the nature of his re-edit work, it's perhaps unsurprising that there's little information out there about Brian Snr. All we know is that he's from South Africa, and the Nice 'N' Slow EP marks his first appearance on Disco Fruit, following a smattering of successful singles on other imprints. The title track is something of a rubbery, disco-funk treat, with the South African making merry with an elastic bassline, wah-wah laden guitars, taut horn lines and sleazy, spoken word vocals. The killer groove and occasional flute solos are emphasized further on the accompanying Dub Mix, before label boss Tonbe gives the track a subtle disco-house makeover.
Review: Thanks to a clutch of solid releases on Midnight Riot, About Disco, SpinCat and Disco Future, 2016 has been a successful year for C Da Afro. Here, the Greek producer draws it to a close via a first outing on Disco Fruit. "I Love You Forever" is beautifully sweet and sugary, with the producer fusing his own nu-disco electronics and slow house beats, with extensive elements of a forgotten '80s soul jam. The '80s grooves return on jazz-funk-meets-electrofunk shuffler "One Step", before he ups the tempo considerably on the bumping "The Groove of Love", where chiming synthesizer melodies and smooth vocals are accompanied by bouncy house beats and a killer synth bassline.
Review: Fresh from lending his sublime scalpel skills to Editorial as part of the label's latest multi-artist extravaganza, C Da Afro returns to Disco Fruit with another tasty two-track missive. The Grecian producer is in predictably fine form on chunky, bass-heavy opener "Music Is Love", where dubbed-out vocal snippets, jazzy guitar motifs, swirling strings and fuzzy organ riffs cluster around a rubbery, all action disco-house groove. "Sugar Love" is an altogether more synth heavy beast, with C Da Afro applying his successful formula - all beefed-up bottom end and excitement building filter sweeps - to a dazzling slab of colourful '80s Euro-boogie goodness.
Review: When Chuggin' Edits made their debut on FKR a few years back, their reworks tended towards the slow, groovy and head-nodding. As time has gone on, they've slowly ratcheted up the tempo in a bid for peak-time glory. This first outing on Disco Fruit continues that trend, laying down mid-tempo groovers primed to get feet moving out on the floor. Choose between the Hendrix style guitar solos, low-slung disco grooves, swirling strings and punchy horns of "Pick Me Up", the woozy deep house-disco warmth of "Satisfying", the flash-friend, disco-house stomp of "Splank" and EP highlight "Stomp!". With its cosmic synth swirls, glass-cut strings, elastic bass and hard-wired funk guitars, the track offers a perfect balance between intergalactic daydreaming and weighty dancefloor chops.
Review: Leeds-based Deelicious impressed with his debut EP for Dimitri Ferrari's Sound Exhibitions label, Neon Disco, so naturally hopes are high for this outing on Tonbe's Disco Fruit imprint. Like its' predecessor, This Is That is full of sparkling, sun-kissed disco reworks that perfectly navigate the tricky waters between reverential rearrangement and the heavier demands of 22st century dancefloors. Some familiar favourites get a going over in the shape of "Why Did You Do It" and "I'll Be Around", a lightly tooled-up version of the Spinners' classic of the same name. Elsewhere, he digs deeper in the crates for inspiration, delivering a flute-laden chunk of filter disco-house ("This Is That") and a bright-eyed chunk of celebratory disco ("Tear Drops & Heartache").
Review: The Phenomenal EP marks sofa-loving scalpel-jockey DFS's return to the comforting bosom of Tonbe's Disco Fruit label. As usual, he's delivered a tried-and-tested selection of largely familiar dancefloor re-tweaks. "Never Give Up Hope" subtly beefs up Gino Soccio's "Try It Out", while "Disco Dancer" adds a little house shuffle to a familiar, dancing themed disco smasher. He manhandles Randy Mueller and the rest of the New York Skyy crew on "Lot's Of You" [sic], before delving deeper into the crates for inspiration on the standout "Funky Dancer". As for "Full Destruction", it's a twinkling soul head-nodder that sounds like an end of night classic in the making.
Review: Retro scalpel-wielder Disco Funk Pioneer has now released quite a few of his fine spliced and diced disco re-edits on some key labels (Katakana Edits, Sound Exhibitions) but the one he calls home is Disco Fruit. Here he's back where he belongs and he's in top form too! There are five new jams to sink your teeth into, beginning with the appropriately named "Disco Fun", a classic Kool & The Gang-style clap-along. Further highlights include the tough Afro/hip-hop craziness of "Funk Power" and the dreamy arpeggiated disco of sax odyssey, "Revolving Funk".
Review: Serbia may not have a Disneyland, but it has its own DJ Disney D. A producer who deeply loves his raw, vintage soul, DJD in collaboration with mentor Tonbe, presents here his debut three track release. Passionate 60s soul is the overriding feel here, with "Yes I Know" being a charging stomper, propelled by an frenetic bassline, honky tonk piano and chanting vocals. Elsewhere "Lonely Does" is soaring and electric Rhythm & Blues and lastly "Lou Is Coming Home" is a slowly building boogie mantra. The latter is also remixed into a more 4/4 style by Loshmi. Slick!
Review: Disco Fruit's latest two-track missive sees label regular Loshmi join forces with Glitterbox regular and disco remixer to the stars Dr Packer. First up is "A Case of Emergency", which sounds like a tidied up, extra-fresh revision of a sparkling '80s soul/electrofunk jam full of addictive synth bass, sing-along chorus vocals, chiming melodies and twinkling pianos. Equally as impressive is accompanying cut-job "House In Downtown", another '80s soul style revision blessed with funk-fuelled boogie bass guitar, spacey synthesizer flourishes, life-affirming brass blasts and a vaguely familiar lead vocal that will have dancers singing along in unison. Proper party music for those who like their dancefloor grooves to come accompanied by shoulder pads, Jheri curls and a side order of cherry wine.
Review: Over the last 12 months, Guildford-based scalpel fiend Evil Smarty has delivered tight, floor-friendly material from Midnight Riot and Wall of Fame, usually in cahoots with Bad Barbie. Here, he goes solo, delivering more gently quantized, house-friendly reworks of lesser-known disco gems. Opener "This Is" is a low-slung disco shuffler turned into a toughened-up house roller, while "Nothing But The Truth" does an excellent job in breathing new life into a celebratory disco-funk party jam, adding thunderous kick-drums whilst retaining the original's attractive haziness. Best of all, though, is "The Get Down", a killer, 98 BPM funk revision that makes great use of the source material's urgent, impassioned vocal, bluesy guitars and wild synthesizers.
Review: As the old saying goes.... When life gives you lemons, call up Evil Smarty and make a bunch of sweet sweet funk edits. "The Groove To Make You Dance" lives up to its name and pays full respect to the sauce with a fizzy uptempo twist and a percussive drop that froths up like you've shaken the bottle for days. "Let's Do It" is equally thirst-quenching with its SOS-sending falsetto funk flare while the title track-inspiring "Sweet Like A Lemon" closes on a decadent bubbly twist. Tuck in and feel fresh; there's enough vitamin C here to keep you alive until at least the age of 128.
Review: Argentine scalpel fiend Fabiolous Barker is rightly regarded as one of the best re-editors in the game, an opinion more than validated by this first EP for Tonbe's Disco Fruit stable. He does a terrific job in building excitement on the sweaty, horn-heavy disco slammer "Back On Love", before dipping the tempo and subtly rolling out the grooves on the boogie era disco-funk shuffle of "Delicious". Speaking of boogie, he expertly stretches out a Jheri curl-sporting 80s soul/synth disco classic on "Don't Turn Around", before making merry with all manner of synth and electric pianos on the rubbery, instrumental disco-funk flex of "Get Down".
Review: Although he's contributed numerous tracks to recent compilations, this three-tracker from Frank Virgilio is actually the enthusiastic label-hopper's first single since the spring. He begins by applying his magic touch to a prime slice of horn-heavy purple funk, wrapping the original's flash-fried guitars, tasty trumpets and scat style vocals around a chunky disco-house style groove. He dips the tempo - but not the floor-friendly intensity - on "Cat In Rio", a low-slung dub disco affair that boasts a suitably heavy bassline and plenty of sun-kissed, samba-soaked synths, while closing cut "Matt's Ring" is a loopy, disco-house style cut-up of Matsubara's "SOS", a jazz-funk/disco fusion classic that used to get regular rotation at David Mancuso's legendary Loft parties.
Review: Having made their debut via a contribution to Rebel Hearts' Super Groovers EP at the tail end of 2016, Gradient Logic has been given a chance to showcase their wares on Tonbe's Disco Fruit imprint. The Saint Petersburg-based duo grasps that opportunity with both hands, laying down a series of weighty, heavily compressed, filter sporting re-works. They begin with the bass heavy '80s soul flex of "Juice", before sprinting into P-funk territory on the deliciously cheery "Tonight". They raise the tempo further on the low-slung, horn-heavy, string-laden disco strut of "Africa", before breathing new life into the sing-along classic that is the Brothers Johnson's "Stomp" ("Stomp All Night").
Review: The latest juicy offering from the Disco Fruit camp comes from St Petersburg outfit Gradient Logic. As usual, they're on a re-edit tip, combining expert cut-ups of classic and little-known tracks with their own production touches (chunkier beats, additional electronics, and so on). Flick through the four tracks and you'll find cheery electrofunk/house fusion (the jaunty melodies, funk-fuelled synth bass and vocal cut-ups of "Far Away"), slow and dubbed-out '80s soul ("Feel Me"), re-arranged disco funk thrills ("I Want You Slide", a slick version of a jazz-funk favourite), and Jam & Lewis style freestyle/electro fusion ("Talk About", with its' distinctive Fairlight CMI stabs).
Review: Hiva and Jr Mark have previously joined forces for releases on Cherry Cola and Mood Funk, so it's little surprise to see them collaborating again on this four-track selection of pumped-up, peak-time disco edits. They begin with "From The Disco", sticking heavyweight beats and sweaty percussive build-ups beneath a vaguely familiar, horn-heavy disco jam, before moving further towards sample-heavy "boompty" hip-house territory on the excellent "My Nigga". The duo's love of sturdy but crispy house beats once again comes to the fore on David Joseph rework "Look Around", while "The Journey" wraps elastic slap bass, filtered horns and key party funk vocal snippets around a slamming house groove.
Review: Guillermo Gonzalez continues to churn out the hits at a furious rate. This tasty EP on Disco Fruit follows two other missives last month (one EP on Empire Studio, the other on Poetry in Motion) and marks the Hotmood man's sixth release of 2018. He begins with the loose and undulating, Herb Alpert-goes-house warmth of "Let's Ride", before turning a chunky Latino roller into a weighty slab of bass-heavy mid-tempo house on EP standout "Mr Funkyman". Elsewhere, "My Disco Collection" sees him re-cast an obscure disco-funk cut as a rolling disco-house loop jam, while "Clean Cuts" is a subtly beefed up take on a sweet and sultry soul cut from the 1960s.
Review: Even by the standards of the disco edit scene, where producers and scalpel fiends think nothing of chucking out new EPs left, right and centre, Hotmood Man Guillermo Gonzalez is impressively prolific. Unlike some of his contemporaries, though, his high standards never split. There's naturally plenty to admire on this return to Disco Fruit, from the baggy-but-bouncing brilliance of "Afro Vibrations" - all lolloping beats, Fela Kuti style sax solos, layered percussion and rich Afro-funk guitars - to the humid and sun-kissed chug of "Tropical", which appears to mix samples lifted from a cover of a well-known jazz-funk jam with warm and wozzy new instrumentation. Also impressive is "Shiny Stockings", a loopy, boogie-driven jam that sits somewhere between Tiger & Woods and Nang-style nu-disco.
Review: Usually the sole preserve of producer Tonbe, I Selektion has all his Christmases come at once, getting his own Disco Fruit release here on the Personal Touch EP. As we've come to expect from this label, the vibe here is all about early '80s American synth-heavy soul with Evelyn 'Champagne' King's classic "Love Come Down", rejigged on lead track "C'mon Down My Love". Other highlights include the heavily filtered shimmer-soul of "Personal Touch" and the ramped up housey version of Oliver Cheatham's "Get Down Saturday Night".
Review: Newbie JB Dizzy has received much love from the nu-disco community, including the likes of Fingerman, Seen On TV and Tonbe. The latter even signed Dizzy to his Juicy Fruit label and has given him his first prominent solo release (he's mainly a regular of compilations). This is his chance to finally shine and he doesn't drop the ball, turning in four high quality re-jigs of some rare, soul and disco. Our faves here include the slow grooves of vocoder-heavy, p-funk opener "Midnight Power", the bouncy retro synth funk of "Touch It" and the slammin' disco-house closer "Don't' Leave Me".
Review: Prolific disco-house dude Tonbe is back under his Loshi moniker for his biggest Serious Edits installment yet on his Disco Fruit label. There's a whopping eight new scalpel jobs this time and it's all about the glorious sound stardust and neon sprinkled late 70s American dance floors. Highlights include the liquid silk bass of the Jacksons-esque "Few More Steps", the sleazy late night block-rocker "Funky Stroke" and the bewildering spacey strings of "Trouble Man".
Review: Serbian disco/house type Tonbe seems to reserve the Loshmi alter-ego for some of his finest reworks; killer edits of often obscure or overlooked material that shows due reverence to the source material. That's certainly the case here, as he works his way through a variety of styles over the course of six suitably hot edits. So, he treats us to some soaring '80s soul revivalism ("Real Love"), jaunty but tight, piano-laden electrofunk ("Be My Love"), surging, high-octane, disco-funk (the string laden madness that is "Depends On You"), and even a dash of punchy boogie-rap (the brilliant "Sad Future", which comes complete with an excellent spoken vocal and some terrifically sleazy sax solos).
Review: Re-edit maestro and disco/house producer Tonbe dons the lesser-used Loshmi alias for this four-tracker on his Disco Fruit imprint. This time out, he's exploring a P-funk/electrofunk flex, delivering Serious Edits that subtly toughen up and rework a quartet of little-known '80s jams. There's a delightfully celebratory feel about opener "Bring Me There", whose jaunty horns, party atmos and synth squiggles are backed by a superbly rubbery low-end groove. There's more urgent slap bass action to be found on the baggier "Fighting For Nothing", while "Wsoop Wsoop" and "Whatever You Do" both deliver heavy, floor-friendly P-funk workouts. In other words, Tonbe delivers all killers, no fillers.
Review: It's a lucky week for Tonbe fans because here, under his Loshmi alias, we have his second EP in the last seven days. "Serious Edits Vol 2" is a different kettle of fish to Cactus Jack altogether. Instead of the housey funk of the latter, it's all about vintage party disco. Highlights include "Disco Chola", which sounds like a long lost Frank Farian Euro gem, "Music Forever" - a Paradise Garage-style muscular retro funk jam and the obvious but good "The Way I Like It".
Review: Disco and edit wizard Tonbe returns to his Loshmi moniker for a new episode of sultry funk goodness on his own Disco Fruit outlet. "Sweet & Nasty" is just about as seductive as you can get - those strings do some real damage in that groove - while "Still Loving You" is a more driving take on a classic boogie monster from the '80s. Aside from those two beauts, "Your Move" gets the hats-off from us - those itchy guitar riffs in the depths of the mix are a pleasure on the ears and a stand-out on the speakers.
Review: With his fingers itching to re-edit once more, disco wizard Tonbe is back to his Loshmi moniker, presenting here a selection of four new jams. It's a high-octane offering too, with things kicking off with the fast and furious "First On The Top", which is all heavy riffs and slamming snares. Elsewhere "Proper One" maintains the energy with some soulful and dreamy funky house, "Inches", meanwhile, is a slightly deeper trip into hazy afterhours vibes and "Free" ends on a euphoric, gospel/boogie high. Serious Edits, serious fun.
Review: Serbia's Tonbe is busy man but, despite the workload, he still makes sure that he keeps his alter ego Loshmi's regular monthly appointments with the Serious Edits series. This sixth installment sees him tackle exactly six of the best party classics around. Highlights include a Chimpmunked Dazz Band jam "Can You Be Good", the raw 80s electro-funk jam "Hot Rubber" and the sizzling hot Cameo rework "Lonely Life".
Review: Since his previous installment of his Serious Edits series in May, Serbia's Loshmi (aka Tonbe) has clearly had a purple patch, having already rustled up another six disco-house bombs for Volume 7. Highlights include thumping new wave groover "Be With Me", the teched-up Chic-style slinker "Coming With You" and the catchy '80s pop vibes of "Honest With Me".
Review: It's always a thrill when we hear that disco/house dude Tonbe is donning the spandex and cape of his Losmi guise for another outing. Here he's steering the Serious Edits ship for the tenth time, delivering six new jams for our listening pleasure. Highlights include the pounding disco-rock-flute workout "Drugstore", the slammin' toughened-up Gil Scott Heron rework "Revolution" and the brassy boogie sass of the swaggering "Night Life". Quality scalpel jobs as always.
Review: We haven't had an instalment of the Serious Edits series since last November, so the arrival of volume 11 has us doing back flips with joy. AS expected Disco Fruit boss Tonbe has once again assumed his Loshmi moniker for editing duties resulting in a typically more light-hearted vibe. Highlights of the eight party tunes here include the perky "Find Another Race" which takes a leaf from the Prodigy by updating an early reggae classic, the electro funk 80s anthem "All About You" and the skippy jazz/garage grooves of "Closer".
Review: Eight re-edits here that, somewhat unusually, draw largely on classic hip-hop rather than the standard old school funk, disco and boogie for inspiration - opener 'Ding Dong', for example, lifts a chunk of vocal from Sequence's Sugarhill classic 'Funk You Up' - though musically we're firmly in disco/house territory. Standouts include 'Burn The Floor' with its infectious P-funk synths and George Clinton-via-Death Row vocal chant, the seriously phat 'n' squelchy 'Real G', and 'In Your Face', which comes on like Ice-T having a go at that oompah-loompah, Balkan-style tech-house that was so popular around 2010 or so.
Review: Tonbe is keeping himself busy. This fifth volume in the Serious Edits series, credited to his alternative Loshmi alias, comes hot on the heels of the fourth. As usual, it's an expansive collection, delivering tidily put together reworks that get the right balance between the original material and the needs of contemporary dancefloors. Kicking off with the fluid disco-funk of "Evil Girls", the Serbian producer variously touches on swinging, blue-eyed soul ("George The Man"), hot-to-trot disco hustlers ("Goodbye", "Her Shine"), Solar Records style '80s vocal disco ("I Wanna Be Ready"), and filter-heavy versions of radio-friendly disco anthems ("This Is The Night"). Best of all, though, is "Secret Game", a breathy, sleazy exercise in Rhodes-laden disco sweatiness.
Review: Serbia's Milos Djordjevic, AKA Loshmi, brings us Vol 14 in his long-running re-edit series, with five tracks covering a range of musical ground. Opening instrumental 'Juice & Boogie' draws on brass-tastic 70s funk (exact source unknown, but there's a strong Blaxploitation soundtrack vibe), while 'El Grande Funk' plunders what would appear to be some heavy Indian sitar funk of the period. 'Very Tough' reworks Angela Bofill's 'Too Tough' from 1983 (ever so slightly!) while another, unknown 80s boogie cut inspires 'Sensual Love'. The standout, though, is 'Palm Springs', a shiny nu-disco jam that makes devastating use of the guitars from Blondie's 'Call Me'.
Review: Astonishingly, Loshmi's long-running "Serious Edits" series is now 15 volumes deep. We can happily confirm that he's not run out of steam yet with the seven-track selection featuring some suitably playable, floor-friendly revisions that are well worth your hard-earned cash. Our highlights include the gently housed-up 80s disco goodness of "Delightful", the heavy disco-funk/proto-rap fusion of "Funky Animals" - all eccentric mic flow, mazy organ lines and beefed-up disco grooves - and the languid, glassy-eyed loveliness of head-nodding warm up gem "Soul Food". There's naturally plenty to set the pulse elsewhere across the EP, too, so give all of the clips a listen if you have time.
Review: Serbia's Disco Fruit bring us a split EP from two label regulars: Montenegro's Sasha Mitich, better known as Mitiko, and Milos Djordjsevic, better known as prolific re-editor (his 'Serious Edits' compilation series is now up to Vol 11) Loshmi. Mitiko brings us two retro funkers - 'My Shoes', with its infectious wukka-wukking guitar riff, and 'Too Hot To Handle', which marries a sung/rapped male vocal to an 80s sounding synth-woodwind hook. Loshmi, meanwhile, takes us into more Latin-leaning funk territory with 'Portoriko' and 'Pretty Chiquita'. All four are built with the simple aim of moving booties on dancefloors, and all four will do that for sure.
Review: Scalpel-wielding re-edit freak Mike Woods first caught our attention earlier this year, with a fine debut EP on Danny Worrall's Masterworks Music label. Here he transfers to Disco Fruit, another solid source of disco, funk and boogie reworks. Woods goes in hard from the start, with the title track delivering a surging heavy funk/disco-house fusion built around spiraling horn lines, urgent guitars and whispered vocals. "Do You Like It" is a metronomic disco-funk rework, while "Steel" benefits greatly from a sumptuous mix of winding saxophone lines, dreamy vocal harmonies sharp violins and swirling orchestration. Finally, he drops the tempo on "Get Up Clap Your Hands", a smart rearrangement of Gwen McRae classic "Funky Sensation".
Review: Two years on from his last appearance - a co-production credit on Bra Zil's "Gaeira" on Smilax - Mitiko pops up on Disco Fruit with an eight-track edits E.P. He's clearly been spending plenty of time hanging out in the summer sunshine, because "Soul Baby" is packed to the rafters with groovy, laidback gems that sound tailor-made for hazy afternoons and sultry sunsets. Highlights come thick and fast, from the chopped-up, hip-hop style production and slick guitars of "Let U Know", to the sumptuous, string-drenched disco shuffle of "As U Grow Up", via the effortless jazz-funk bliss of the title track. Check, also, the energetic builds of "Cure For This", a tasty rework of Diana Ross's much re-edited disco classic "Love Hangover".
Review: For this 49th serving of Disco Fruit, label boss Tonbe has turned to regular contributor Mitiko. Turn Off The Light is a weighty package, with seven sneaky reworks, cut-ups and sample-heavy club tracks to choose from. We're particularly enjoying the groovy, Sade-style dancefloor smoothness of "Let The Spirit Move Me", the jazzy disco bliss of "Turn Off The Light", and the drowsy, mid-tempo deep house shuffle of "I Need You", though there are plenty more highlights elsewhere. Check, for example, the glistening guitar solos of soft-focus disco closer "Lovin You" and the 105 BPM disco-funk party that is "No Attitude".
Review: Accomplished nu-disco don Mitiko is back with another extended play/mini-album, Jazzy Nights, on Tonbe's acclaimed Juicy fruit label. Now everyone needs their nights, er, jazzed up a little and this guy is the man to do it. He presents six new cuts here, all of which will have you throwing major shapes on dancefloors everywhere. Highlights include the seven-minute title track - all rolling bass, gentle wah-wah pedals and cocktail house rhythms, "Make It Shine On" is bouncy Balearic house, the kind of thing you might find on a late 80s dance album and "Tonight" infuses more lazy house beats with some jazz boogie.
Review: You can tell that nu-disco don Mitiko was never a really a fan of singles just from examining his own output. This chap likes his releases to be jam packed with tunes, usually releasing long extended plays/mini-albums on Tonbe's esteemed imprint, Disco Fruit. Particular Groove is no different: boasting a whopping seven tracks, there's plenty to get your teeth into here. Highlights include the triumphant soul chant "Its Not Over", the filtered elastic funk-house rhythms of "Particular Groove" and the swishey and deep poolside vibes of "Waiting To Meet".
